Pick No.204

Selected By: New York Jets

Round: 6

Pick (Overall): 30 (204)

Pick Analysis: Cannon is not a big back by any means (5-foot-11, 185 pounds), but trying to catch him in the open field is a tough job. He started his career at Shepherd University, but only played in six games as a reserve there in 2014 (47 carries, 216 yards, two touchdowns; three receptions for 28 yards). Cannon transferred to Virginia State for the following year, and led the team in rushing as a 10-game starter (174 carries, 1,178 yards, nine touchdowns; nine catches, 182 yards, two touchdowns). Though he didn't start in 2016, Cannon still earned first-team All-Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association notice with 1,214 yards and 18 touchdowns on 168 carries (18 catches, 203 yards, two touchdowns; 14 kick returns, 449 yards, one touchdown). In his final season, the Hampton native finished third in Division II in rushing with 1,638 yards on 212 totes, scoring 17 times on the ground (21 catches, 225 yards, three touchdowns). He was a first-team All-CIAA pick as a running back and kick returner in 2017 (25 returns, 821 yards, two touchdowns).
